Ringo Starr - Ringo Starr Will Not Be Involved In Olympics Opening

Beatles legend Ringo Starr has removed himself from the line-up of a potential supergroup tipped to perform at the London Olympics next year (12), insisting he will be busy on tour at the time of the games.
British gold medal-winning rower Steve Redgrave hinted that organisers want to reteam Starr with Sir Paul MCCartney as part of a spectacular ensemble which would include Sir Mick Jagger and John Lydon to kick off the Olympics' opening ceremony, which is being directed by Danny Boyle.
But Starr insists he won't be involved in any such line-up as he will be performing in the U.S.
He tells Sky News, "I'll be touring America so I won't be doing it."
